conducts business all year, not just the week of the fair. Annual Car shows,
livestock shows, horse shows, weddings, camps, demolition derbies, auctions,
Fitness groups, cloggers, company picnics, Freedom Fest, awareness groups, and 4H
activities keep the facility occupied and maintained. Fast Tracks on-line auction company
is currently renting the Merchant Hall as a distribution center. Lafferty is thrilled to see
the Agricultural Society being operated as a service agency and is excited for all the new
Improvements and structures that will be completed before the fair. “Every year, more
People are getting involved, taking ownership, donating time and materials, and investing
In a fairground that is a county asset and an educational facility for all ages”. As always,
Lafferty encourages people to rent booth space, advertise your school, your business, your
Agency, your creative talents. The Fair Board is very thankful and appreciative of
everyone who has taken the time to make a difference with our fair and facility.
